Balkans Beyond Borders Short Film Festival

BBB’ s flagship activity is the annual thematic short-film festival, “Balkans Beyond Borders Short Film Festival”.

The Film Festival takes place in a different Balkan city each year. It celebrates Balkan diversity and engages audience and creators to reflect on pressing contemporary issues through the medium of short film. The festival is framed by other cultural events like photo exhibitions, visual art events, live bands, graffiti activities, etc.

Hosting city 2014: Sarajevo

This year’s theme is:

Dare to repeat!

Repetition as one of the most used strategies in contemporary art, literature, music, theater, dance and film.
Repetition not as occurrence of the same, but as the difference and creative activity of transformation that produces variations through the act of repetition.
Repetition as a new experience, encouraging new discoveries and experiments, with different expressions emerging each time.
Repetition produced via difference and not mimesis.
Repeat = to begin anew again.

For this year’s film festival we are inviting young filmmakers to submit their short film using repetition as transformation, as concept between identical, different and seemingly like, copy and original, primary and consequent, bringing about a reflection on contemporary issues.

So get inspired and dare to repeat!


Submission period ended on 15 of July.
